This is a fabulous sangiovese with super fine tannins that melt into the wine. I love the cherry, orange-peel and floral character. So fine and polished. Agile and floating across the palate. Drinkable now, but ever better in 2021.

The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a tight and streamlined wine with wild berry aromas, cassis, licorice and mild spice. I can't say that there is huge intensity here—the wine has more of a measured and mild nature, but it is pleasantly streamlined and elegant from start to finish. It's a great match for a Tuscan bean soup and freshly baked bread.
Deep ruby in color with garnet lights that hint at the wine's extended barrel aging, Castello di Bossi Gran Selezione is explosive in its intensity and yet the wine manages an astounding complexity and finesse. Aromas of rich black cherry and plum integrate well with cedar, sweet cooking spices, chocolate and saddle leather. On the palate the wine is fleshy and dense. The finish achieves great balance and very pronounced length. This is a wine that will age with grace for many years.
Match Castello di Bossi Gran Selezione with robust main courses. Roasted and grilled meats pair easily with Gran Selezione while well-seasoned cheeses and hardy vegetable-based stews broaden the scope.
